About the film
Director: Mike Mitchell
Actors: Will Arnett, Chris Pratt, Tiffany Haddish, Elizabeth BanksEVERYTHING IS EVEN AWESOMER.
You can’t keep that Emmet Brickowski down. Even though his once-awesome LEGO world has devolved into a MAD MAX-esque wasteland, Emmet (Chris Pratt) still walks around with a smile on his face and a perfect shell of hair on his head. The story opens almost where the first film ended, with the intrusion of Duplo invaders into the hard-won tranquility of the Lego world of Bricksburg. Five years later, Bricksburg has been reduced to rubble and refashioned as the “grittier and cooler” Apocalypseburg.
So when invaders arrive from outer space and capture the love of Emmet’s life, Wyldstyle (Elizabeth Banks), he sets off on a shiny, plastic, hurts-if-you-step-on-it-in-bare-feet adventure to save her.
Lego Movie 2 comes with many of the pieces (so to speak) from the first movie still in place: the original’s writing/directing duo, Phil Lord and Chris Miller, have written and produced the film, although they’ve relinquished the directing to Mike Mitchell (Trolls), while the visuals are still supervised by animation director Trisha Gum and the Animal Logic studio.
Featuring a slew of new and returning celebrities (Margot Robbie, Tiffany Haddish, Channing Tatum, and Nick Offerman) who will throw jokes at you faster than you can throw your LEGOs into the toy bin. THE LEGO MOVIE 2: THE SECOND PART promises to bring more of the irreverent, quick-witted fun that you loved in the first film.
